Fun Facts About Stephanie
What is your favourite part of the job?
My favourite part of being a wedding planner is executing the day and witnessing the couple seeing all the planning and design unfold.
Do you have a favorite tool of the trade?
My emergency kit on a wedding day!
What is one thing you wish you could educate your clients on?
While much of our job as planners is educating, I would love to focus on realistic budgeting and while DIY is a great way to personalize your wedding, the cost can add up and it will take up a lot of time and storage in your home.
What is your best hidden talent?
Baking…I’m not terrible 😉
Where do you come up with your ideas?
My couples. While we use Pinterest to gather idea inspiration we really pull from our couple’s story, their everyday life, hobbies, travel and how they decorate their home.
What trend do you wish would disappear?
I’m not a trend planner but I guess the one I would say is burlap runners and mason jars but I think I can confidently say that’s gone now.
What is the last concert you’ve been to?
Glorious Sons but look forward to dancing to Backstreet Boys when concerts happen again.
What is your biggest indulgence?
A good Pinot Noir or foot reflexology after a busy weekend of weddings.
What is your favorite wedding season?
Summer/Fall. Love a good West Coast outdoor wedding.
What is your Astrology sign and Enneagram?
Sagittarius and Enneagram 2
What is your Love Language?
Quality Time and Words of Affirmation
What is your favorite place to vacation?
Europe. I traveled solo back in 2018 and my next travel spot will be Greece. Can’t wait!
